On Wednesday, September 25, 2019, we will be hosting “AARP Night” at the China Lights show for our members. We’re excited to collaborate with Boerner Botanical Gardens this year to bring our members this special evening.
The theme for 2019 is “Treasures of China,” and will feature more than 40 handmade, sculptural lantern displays, 95% of them new for 2019! The tradition of lighting lanterns began centuries ago. Lantern festivals can be traced back to the beginning of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25–220). On the 15th day of the first month in the Chinese calendar people lit fireworks and lanterns to pray for good harvest and good fortune. This year’s show will have 95% new lantern displays featuring cultural gems. The handmade displays range from three-feet to three-stories high. The festival will also include an expanded interactive exhibit area, two stages for Asian folk-culture performances, a marketplace, two dining areas and vendors offering a variety of Asian and Western menu options. It’s both educational and fun for the whole family!
